By using two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, a proteomic analysis over time was conducted with high-cell-density, industrial, phosphate-limited Escherichia coli fermentations at the 10-liter scale. During production, a recombinant, humanized antibody fragment was secreted and assembled in a soluble form in the periplasm. E. coli protein(More)
Host cell proteins (HCPs) are among the process-related impurities monitored during recombinant protein pharmaceutical process development. The challenges of HCP detection include (1) low levels of residual HCPs present in large excess of product protein, (2) the assay must measure a large number of different protein analytes, and (3) the population of HCP(More)
To understand the diversity in the cell culture harvest (i.e., feedstock) provided for downstream processing, we compared host cell protein (HCP) profiles using three Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cell lines in null runs which did not generate any recombinant product. Despite differences in CHO lineage, upstream process, and culture performance, the cell(More)
In the biopharmaceutical industry, recombinant protein drugs are commonly produced in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells. During the development process, removal of CHO cell-derived proteins from the biopharmaceutical product is monitored using multi-product immunoassays. Such immunoassays are developed by raising antibodies to a single CHO cell protein(More)
During expression of biotherapeutic proteins, complex mixtures of additional proteins are also produced by normal expression machinery of the host cell (termed "host cell proteins," or HCP). HCPs pose a potential impact to patient safety and product efficacy, and therefore must be well-characterized and the ability of the process to clear these proteins(More)
